Honoring Philanthropy

SUMMER 2021

Message from our Vice President of Philanthropy Summer’s warm days are full of energy and sunshine and are a time for growth and optimism. We are excited be gathering in person, enjoying the smiling faces of our families, friends, and neighbors. And Woodland Healthcare Foundation is excited to continue partnering with our community to enhance healthcare for all.

The team at Wraith, Scarlett & Randolph Insurance Services (WSR) have created a culture of giving back to the community.

Generations of Giving When we think of roots in a community, quite often we think solely in length of time— how long a company, family, or organization has been a part of the area. Yet deep roots are grown that much stronger by active giving and connections: knowing your neighbors, donating your time, valuing local services and products. Wraith, Scarlett & Randolph Insurance Services (WSR) is a remarkable example of

these deep roots. Well-known in the Woodland community for providing agriculture, business, health, crop, and other insurance services, this treasured local company opened its doors in 1917. Now, more than 100 years since its beginnings, the company is one of the oldest and largest independently owned insurance agencies in Northern California, with more than 62 employees across five states. Yet with their impressive regional and national growth, their dedication to supporting Continued on page 2

With our Strengthening Our Roots initiative nearing completion, we are pleased to provide an update on new hospital equipment generously funded by community donors like you. Thanks to you, we have been able to provide new equipment that supports projects and programs to strengthen services at Woodland Healthcare and deliver the highest levels of patient care and comfort to our community. We are also pleased to share with you the story of WSR Insurance Services, whose roots are very deep in Woodland. We believe you’ll enjoy hearing about their longstanding culture of giving back to the community and strengthening our region. In addition, you will read about Dr. Cleve Baker, a beloved physician and treasured friend to Woodland Healthcare Foundation. His Continued on page 6

their local community has never wavered. WSR Insurance Services’ first gift to Woodland Healthcare Foundation was in 1967, the same year the Foundation was established. They joined the fund drive to build the Woodland Memorial Hospital that we know and treasure today, and they’ve held a longstanding tradition of charitable giving to the Foundation for over 50 years.

WSR Insurance Services gives to many local organizations and is passionate about supporting Woodland Healthcare Foundation because of their belief that offering the community exceptional medical care close to home is vital. “WSR is strengthening our region by giving back. We want to help make the lives of those around us better,” says Tom Scarlett, CEO, senior VP and owner. “Although Woodland has grown in recent years, it still has a wonderful hometown feeling. All of us are proud to be from Woodland, to live here, and contribute to the community.” Fostering a strong culture of giving back has long been a priority for the company. “About 15 years ago we had an employee approach us about her desire to volunteer her 2

time in our community, but felt she was financially unable to lose the paid work hours to do that. We created a Community Service Hours Program and gave each employee 60 hours annually of compensated time for their volunteerism,” shares Vicki Watson, president/chief operating officer. “We empower employees to give in ways that are close to their hearts.” “Internally, we have a committee which narrows down a charitable gift list to two or three organizations, carefully considering both where funds are needed and which initiatives represent causes the employees are tied to. Then we, as owners, donate on the employees’ behalf. They appreciate it and feel a sense of pride to be part of that collective gift. The idea started during the Camp Fire in 2018, which personally impacted us all. Coming together as a team was very moving and brought us closer,” adds Watson.

Kevin Hoppin, vice president and owner, adds, “In 2003, when I first started at WSR, I quickly realized just how involved they were—not only financially contributing in the community, but also having our faces out there and getting that direct connection with those we are trying to help. By being active in the community, we see the struggles those in need deal with every day. As a team, when we take time to serve and contribute, we really connect with and help those that have meant so much to Woodland and the surrounding areas.” Woodland Healthcare Foundation is grateful to the owners and employees of WSR Insurance Services for being an important part of our donor family. Most recently, they supported the Strengthening Our Roots initiative to enhance care for our families, friends and neighbors. We are grateful for their outstanding and continued commitment to our community!


Update: Strengthening Our Roots Woodland Healthcare Foundation is excited to update you on our Strengthening Our Roots initiative, a communitywide effort. We are close to reaching our goal of $1.2 million to help make our hospital and clinics the best they can be. Throughout the hospital, enhancements are already underway. Thanks to generous support from our community and employee donors and with hospital funding, following is a sampling of immediate needs we’ve met as part of this exciting initiative: Laboratory Cepheid, a Respiratory Testing Platform The Cepheid is a rapid testing system which allows hospital staff to screen for COVID-19, Influenza A, Influenza B, and Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV) in under an hour. This allows for rapid and accurate diagnosis of serious viral infections and improves patient care and outcomes. With this equipment funded and in use, the Woodland Memorial Hospital Laboratory has been able to double its testing capacity, which decreases waiting times in the Emergency

Department and enables staff to safely admit critically ill patients to other departments within the hospital.

to monitor newborn bilirubin levels in a non-invasive fashion that provides reliable visual and digital measurements.

This system also offers additional testing opportunities that can easily be implemented in the future, making it a versatile and valuable addition to the hospital laboratory.

In addition to reducing stress and pain for babies who would experience multiple heel pricks during their hospital stay, this tool improves the process of jaundice screening because it reduces the risk of infection and human error, and automatically measures, saves and transfers data. This results in quicker access to information for decision making and provides a better experience for our tiniest patients and their families!

ICU Blanket Warmer A warm blanket can reduce patients’ pain, allowing them to rest more peacefully. Before the pandemic, ICU caregivers easily accessed these blankets from the Post-Anesthesia Care Unit, conveniently located adjacent to the department. Because of adjustments required due to COVID restrictions, ICU staff had been unable to offer a warm blanket to patients for over a year. With this equipment recently purchased through Strengthening Our Roots, ICU nurses will now be able to quickly offer patients warm blankets, creating greater comfort and rest—an important part of healing and recovery. Family Birth Center Bilirubin Meter The new bilirubin meter to test for neonatal jaundice is an extremely valuable new piece of equipment in the Family Birth Center. It allows caregivers

Family Birth Center Bassinets Ten new Halo bassinets will soon be in use at the Family Birth Center—exciting new equipment that will provide enhanced independence for new mothers. Patients who undergo a cesarean section have limited movement for several days, which requires increased support in their newborn’s care. The mobility of the Halo bassinet will allow mothers to participate in newborn care as the bassinet will swivel over to their bed. From their very first moments, we're making sure our newest patients—and their families—feel connected, supported and safe. Continued on page 6

Leaving a Legacy of Care

Donor Spotlight: Dr. Cleve Baker

Dr. Cleve Baker was a compassionate man who touched countless lives in the Woodland community. Among his many kind attritbutes, Dr. Baker is remembered by his excellence in healthcare and caring for those in need. His generosity will enhance healthcare for our families, friends and neighbors for generations to come.

“Find a small town, grow your roots, and take care of your community.” This was the advice given to Dr. Cleve Baker from his professor upon graduation from Stanford School of Medicine in the late 1950s. Luckily for all of us in the Woodland community, these were words Dr. Baker took to heart, faithfully serving as a dermatologist for over 35 years and as an engaged, passionate local citizen throughout his life. He peacefully passed away at the St. John's Retirement Village in August 2020, and we honor his enduring legacy in our community. As “Doctor #16”, as he would proudly share with a smile, Dr. Baker started his practice in Woodland in 1966. “He loved Woodland Healthcare for its wonderful reputation, and called it the ‘Mayo Clinic of the West’ for its many skilled doctors,” recalls his daughter, Bonnie Armistead. “He could have been a teaching doctor at Stanford Hospital, but opted not to, valuing patient care instead.” 4

As a physician, Dr. Baker was particularly dedicated to supporting healthcare for migrant workers and spent time helping them—setting up a table at the farm where they were working and giving them onsite skin checks, which was especially important as their work in the sun made them vulnerable to skin issues. As his daughter, Ginger Akil, explains, “My dad loved being a doctor. He loved his patients, California, farmers, and the Hispanic community and their role in agricultural contributions. He was highly motivated to be among the people meeting the needs of migrant workers, who have been a huge part of Yolo County.”

She adds, “Some of these patients couldn’t pay, and often didn’t speak English. They’d come right to the house to see him. We’d hear the doorbell and answer it, and standing there would be men holding bags and bags of English walnuts and oranges. They were so grateful!” A believer in community medicine, Dr. Baker often made house calls and inperson visits to nursing homes, often with his young children accompanying him. After his retirement in the late 1990s, he continued visiting local nursing homes, but now to play piano—his beloved Dixieland jazz. He recognized that those in the nursing homes were still his patients and he was determined to continue to care


and support them. Employees of Woodland Memorial Hospital fondly remember his piano playing at holiday events as well. Many years ago, Dr. Baker established a Charitable Remainder Trust (CRT) to benefit Woodland Healthcare. For Dr. Baker, the decision to create the CRT was made as he sold his practice. He and other doctors owned the building that housed their medical practices (the Railsback Building on Fairchild Court, current site of Woodland Clinic). “The CRT to the Foundation was a win/win,” says daughter Elizabeth Baker. “When the Railsback Building was sold, the CRT sheltered those funds from

Quite simply, Dr. Baker was adored by those who knew him and whose lives were touched by him. And with his gift to the Foundation, which will fund improvements at the Woodland

We are so grateful that over 50 years ago, Dr. Baker chose Woodland as the small town in which he grew roots. His care of the community will last for generations to come.

Honoring Woodland’s Orange Ribbon Heroes

We’ll share your words of gratitude and let them know the care they provide inspired you to make a gift in their honor. One hundred percent of your gift will benefit Woodland Healthcare and make a positive impact in our community. Thank you for your generosity!

Through the pandemic, our caregivers have been the light in our community! That’s why Woodland Healthcare Foundation recently reached out to community members like you to honor our Orange Ribbon Heroes—our local caregivers who have worked tirelessly during the pandemic. The response was overwhelming, and here’s just a sample of the messages we received: “Your constant care and concern have touched our lives forever. Thank you so very much. ”

“We are thankful for all the Orange Ribbon Heroes at Woodland Healthcare!”

“Thank you for the loving care you give to us. We feel safe with you. ” You can join the celebration today and honor Woodland Hospital and Clinic doctors, nurses, and other team members with a tribute gift and message of encouragement and appreciation.

Thank you for your support! Thanks to the generosity of our donors, Woodland Healthcare Foundation recently funded $38,880 for a new Gamma Probe for the Imaging and Surgical Departments at Woodland Memorial Hospital. This equipment is an added tool in the fight against breast cancer and used on mastectomy patients who have lymph node involvement. The probe allows surgeons to pinpoint the lymph node area that is affected and remove it without having to remove more than is medically necessary, resulting in a less invasive procedure and greater precision.
